;; Put this in the .emacs file
(require 'font-lock)
(add-hook 'find-file-hooks 'turn-on-font-lock)

;; I also use this:-
(defun setup-jay-c-mode ()
  (interactive)
  (setq font-lock-maximum-decoration 't)
  (turn-on-line-number-mode)
  (turn-on-font-lock)
  (c-toggle-auto-state 1)
  (setq c-hanging-braces-alist '()))

(add-hook 'c-mode-common-hook 'setup-jay-c-mode)
